The President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has stated that Ghanaians did not vote massively in the 2016 elections for him to complain but to fix the ailing economy.
Delivering his maiden State of the Nation Address in Parliament today, he explained that he has no cause no complain but to change the fortunes of the economy as expected by Ghanaians.
‘“Too much time, energy and resources were spent in the past in my view, without a deliberate conscious assessment of the impact on jobs and whether or not we were spending wisely to improve the lives of the people, communities and businesses. But I was not elected by the overwhelming majority of the Ghanaian people to complain. I was elected to get things done; I was elected to fix what is broken and my government and I are determined to do just that,’ he assured.
He disclosed that Ghana missed almost all its targets under the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Fiscal indiscipline in 2016.
“I am in a hurry to put a government together. Our economy is in a bad state. Our worse fears have been confirmed. Ghana missed almost all its targets under the IMF Fiscal indiscipline reared its head in 2016,’ he said.
